Opera 9.5 will be Packed with HauteSecure Technology to Block Malware
Norway based Opera browser has partnered with Haute Secure a security company which protects users from malicious software. Haute Secure blocks and analyzes sites on the link level instead of at the domain level. So, only a single page which contains malicious software will be blocked instead of blocking the entire site.
“When someone downloads Opera, we make a commitment to do everything we can to keep them safe,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera.
“Today we’ve extended that commitment beyond the browser to protect our users from malware that tries to attack when they visit a compromised Web page or that they may unintentionally try to download. Haute Secure’s prevention technology is reinventing Web-based threat detection and we look forward to working together in protecting our users all over the world.”
Haute Secure uses a unique technology which detects a malicious code and sends the information to all other Haute Secure plug-in users, which prevents users from accidentally or unknowingly downloading rogue malware designed to steal personal data such as credit card numbers, passwords and other identity information.
“Malware innovation is morphing malicious software at a pace so rapid, it makes current security technologies useless in protecting web users from harmful attacks,” said Steve Anderson, co-founder of Haute Secure. “Today’s web users face more threats than ever before and Haute Secure is solely focused on building best-of-breed malware protection that prevents users from becoming crime victims just by browsing the Internet. With Opera’s dedication to keeping its users secure, our partnership is protecting more than 20 million web users from malicious attacks.”
Haute Secure is also available as a plug-in for Firefox and Internet Explorer. You can download it at http://hautesecure.com/download.aspx
